AND ALL GROWN UP!
It's hard to believe that this is the 18th edition of the Kosher Cooking Carnival, the monthly blog carnival dedicated to all aspects of Kosher Food. Next month's carnival will be hosted by the Baleboosteh, and I'm looking for a host for July's edition. If you're interested, please let me know. Here's a list of the 17 previous ones: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17!
There was a time I'd say that we need dairy recipes for Shavuot, but since my daughter married a Tunisian I've even served a meat meal on the holiday. There are Jewish ethnic groups which don't eat dairy, and nowadays more and more people are discovering that they're lactose intolerant and must restrict or ban dairy products. That's one thing we've discovered living in Israel. Not everyone celebrates Shavuot by eating cheese cake, and another thing, not everyone eats meat meals on Shabbat. Many people, not just vegetarians, have dairy on Shabbat, especially during the day. That's a good reason to be more open-minded and creative in your menu planning.
Joe Settler tries trendy. Black will never be the same for me.

It's complicated to set up a kitchen, especially a kosher one, from scratch. Here are some ideas.
Try Chainik Hocker's Falafel Chicken from Kosher by Design: Short on Time by Susie Fishbein.
This one isn't really about kosher food, but it's Rickey's opinions about TV food mavens. Maybe someone should write about the Israeli ones. Good idea for a future post.
Here's some Chicken Soup from Ra'anana.
Looks like more people may have to prepare their own baby's food, if they want it kosher: Jewish Blogmeister: BeechNut Baby Food Alert: Going Non Kosher. He also wrote Olive Oil...Why It's So Great.. . I couldn't agree more.
In Israel, Yom Ha'aztmaut, Independence Day, is usually an outdoor barbecue. We had grilled food and lots of other great things, but we ate inside.
Shoshi says that kosher is big business.
Now for a little "only in Israel" food halacha quiz:
Why did I eat the fruit outside?
How about Mrs. Kane’s Meatballs from Frugal Journey? It uses some ready-made sauces, but I'm sure you can substitute similar ones according to what's available and whatever hechshar you use. Honestly, after 37 years in Israel, I'm no expert on American products.
Ted just sent me all these great recipes!

Help! I Have A Fire In My Kitchen: Tzimmes (Jewish Casserole or Stew)

The Baleboosteh, and what a Baleboosteh, sent this dairy/vegetable dish. It's perfect for those who want to serve dairy on Shavuot or any time…
And for a Vegan Chocolate Cheesecake, try Marallyn's.
Now, what's the opposite of cheesecake? Chicken Soup, of course. Try Ya'aqov's.
Here's a nice, basic Challah recipe from Ima Biologist. I'm glad that KCC is her debut in jblog carnivals. Welcome! We hope to see more of you.
As I write this, the voting is still going on in JIB Awards. I'm a finalist in two food categories. Don't worry; I'm not electioneering. By the time you read this the voting will be over and the winners announced. So, let's see what the competition is doing!

In all honesty, I'm not even familiar with most of the other food blogs. So this is our big chance. I'm sure there's lots more going on in the jblogging kosher food world than we could ever imagine.
